Air Care Alliance (The Air Care Alliance is a nationwide league of humanitarian flying organizations dedicated to community service. This document is intended to introduce you to us and to all the groups we list whose activities involve public benefit flying for health care, patient transport, and other missions of public service.)

THE ANGEL FLIGHT AMERICA NETWORK (The Angel Flight America Network includes a nationwide integrated regional network of six professionally operated, non-profit Angel Flight Volunteer Pilot Organizations (AFVPOs).  All work together to provide "seamless" and fully coordinated medical air travel for qualified patients and family members normally up to 900 or 1,000 miles distance.  No-cost transportation is provided by volunteer pilots flying their own aircraft just the same as when they fly trips with their own families or business associates.  There are approximately 4,000 volunteer pilots involved in this national network and during 1999 this network flew in excess of 6,500 patients PLUS patient family members in complete safety.  All Angel Flight America regional organizations can be reached 24/7/365 and function solely for the benefit of patients needing travel assistance.  Referral to the correct region is best done by calling the National Patient Travel HELPLINE at 1-800-296-1217)
